Editorial Reviews

2011 album from the kick-ass heavy rock quartet. On Murder The Mountains, Red Fang wave a middle finger at fashion and bet the proverbial house on substance over style. The incredible "Wires", "Number Thirteen", "Hank Is Dead", and "The Undertow" are just a few of an onslaught of highlights on this front-to-back set of great f%$king songs.

2011's Murder The Mountains is the second full-length album from Red Fang. It is somewhat of a grower and may take a few listens to fully get into, as while the music is all very strong and interesting, it doesn't jump out at you as immediately as tracks from their previous album like `Prehistoric Dog,' did, for example, but stick with it and you'll be rewarded for your patience.

While reading a list of other bands in relation to one band can often be annoying; Red Fang are often described as being suitable for fans of bands like Mastodon, Baroness, Clutch, Melvins, The Sword, Fu Manchu and Queens Of The Stone Age and this does a good job not only of describing which end of the musical spectrum they sit on, but also the fact that the band flit psychotically between styles. Red Fang are compared to all the aforementioned artists seriously and not just because of touring partnerships or basic genre comparisons.

For example, the opening track `Malverde,' is tom-based with complex instrumentation and sludgey vocals reminiscent of Baroness and Early Mastodon but the very next track `Wires,' is a bouncy, simplistic good time rock and roll number with clean and melodic vocals reminiscent of QOTSA, at least until the atmospheric proggy build up in the middle, at which point things change once more into a grand and spacey direction reminiscent of modern Mastodon.

In the space between two songs, or even half a song Red Fang completely shift direction and cover all sorts of ground along the Stoner/Sludge/Progressive-Sludge areas of the genre, while still maintaining an original identity. Their sound can be dark, dense and brooding but it can also be bright, happy and bouncy.

These guys probably drink a lot of beer. I can smell it coming off the tracks. That makes sense, because I always want to drink beer when I listen to this album. I think I'll do that now, because I am a free American. Beer.

Mastodon? Yes. Melvins? Very much so. If you like the Melvins, Mastodon, Big Business, Dozer, Kylesa... rock in general?!! then this album is for you! Which it is for me. This album is nothing like their first. Not a bad thing whatsoever! I hate repetition myself. While their sound is very much still Red Fang, this one is totally different from the first. 5+ stars!! My favorite band right now, buy it!!

Confession time: This reviewer knows very little about the Oregon band Red Fang. But hey, that doesn't really matter, because with their second full-length, they certainly got my attention! 2011's "Murder The Mountains" is a quality of slab of sludge/doom/stoner metal, and one that is filled with the good stuff. Sure, the band is rooted in era Black Sabbath-indebted guitar riffing, but there is much more to their sound than just that. Like solid melodies, brutal bass lines, energetic and dexterous drumming, and rambunctious, sludge-filled grooves. And plus, the guitar tone is so thick and brutal in these ten songs that it actually sometimes takes the album to near grindcore-levels of heaviness.

The band proudly wears a strong Mastodon influence on its sleeve throughout "Murder The Mountains." In fact, the opener, "Malverde," could very well be an early Mastodon (or Baroness) b-side, as it mainly revolves around walls of sludgy, Sabbath-on-steroids-esque guitars, steady bass lines, dexterous, bouncy drum fills, and oh-so-Troy Sanders-ish vocals. With that said, though, track two, "Wires," with its heavy, sludgy, downtuned guitar and bass rumbles, is very, very Queens Of The Stone Age-esque. It does retain some influence from other bands, though, including Mastodon (mainly in the vocals), "Paranoid"-era Sabbath-derived grooves, and drumming that would make The Melvins proud. And "Hank Is Dead" continues in this same vein, as it finds a gluey, flowing, and propulsive bass groove underlying Sabbath-y sludge riffs, and churning, lumbering, pounding rhythms. (This tune is a highlight, though, for also featuring a bluesy, harmonic guitar solo, to boot.

Like others have noted, it's both useful and easy to compare Red Fang to other bands, because they're so diverse from song to song. It is difficult to describe their "sound" because while it's all hard rock, the nuances therein vary considerably among the tracks. They've got two lead singers and obviously are in mastery of several song writing styles. I was only familiar with the songs Prehistoric Dog and Wires from the videos, but picked up this record and the self titled debut after being totally blown away by Red Fang's live show opening up for Mastodon. Murder the Mountains contains an obvious influence from Queens of the Stone Age, Melvins, Alice in Chains, Kyuss, Nirvana and their tour mates Mastodon (several of these bands, QOTSA, Mastodon, and Melvins in particular, have made careers of deploying many styles and branching out into any genre they choose while retaining a core sound, so the comparison works on multiple levels). The first track Malverde, with its plodding percussion and quirky sludge riffs is the closest thing I've heard to vintage Stoner Witch/Stag era Melvins...perhaps ever (guitarist/vocalist Maurice Giles has got the King Buzzo voice completely nailed). And that's quite a compliment. The next song, Wires (with an astonishingly great music video, btw), sounds like it could be a different band - it's a catchy hard rock number with vivid lyrics and a spooky instrumental riff section that immediately brings to mind Lullabies to Paralyze era QOTSA (might I also add that this band is the best I've ever heard at aping Josh Homme's signature repetitive "robot rock" riffs...check out the verses to songs like Wires and Prehistoric Dog and Number Thirteen to see what I mean). Two songs in and the record already sounds like a mix tape from heavy metal heaven.Read more ›
